Gamba Osaka said Friday it will ban all flags and banners from home and away games following the appearance of a flag that resembles a Nazi Schutzstaffel (SS) symbol at last Sunday’s local derby against Cerezo Osaka.

Gamba officials met with members of the group that displayed the banner to hear their side, but has banned the group from the team’s games.
